The first bottle looks a lot like Misty's sample. I chose a brown background, and because of the word "poison" I couldn't stop thinking about poison ivy, so I added some. I thought it looked sort of like an old bottle you might find tucked in the back of a barn, and wouldn't it be ironic for it to be sitting in some poison ivy?
The background and bottle were created from fabrics I designed in photoshop, while the leaves are hand dyed.
I think it's kind of fun.
The next bottle Misty calls a "coffin" bottle. Well, it looked kind of like a vase to me, so I went with that. I went a little wild and carefree with this one, screen printing the flowers and using some fabric I designed for the vase.
|I was going for sort of a retro cut glass look on the bottle.|
|I like the flowers, but feel that the white ones still need something - maybe a few lazy daisies in the centers and some French knots?|

Thanks for inviting me to play, Misty!
